Introduction to DTCE  

To accomplish the systematic activation of CCBs in all 6,022/- Unions of Pakistan, to fulfil the potential of LGO 2001, Devolution Trust for community Empowerment (DTCE) was incorporated through Section 42 of the Companies Ordinance of 1984 as an “Association Not for Profit” without share capital in July 2003. It has a Board of Directors with the Chairman of the National Reconstruction Bureau being the ed-officio Chairman of the Board. A Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is a member of the Board and its Secretary. Other members are distinguished citizens, including one from each province. Donors supporting the DTCE also participate as observers. UNDP Pakistan has been supporting Operationalization of DTCE through a nationally executed UNDP project titled “Support to DTCE”. The basic organizational principle of DTCE is inter-related work teams rather than departments in order to produce a flat, agile, flexible organization that function in an integrated fashion. Work teams exist at both headquarters and field operations levels, with the former providing support services to the latter.
